33 Free Beautiful Minimalist Color and Monochrome Wallpapers


We are all familiar with the design motto “Less is more”. When design is optimized to have no more than the fundamentals or what is needed, it can transcend beyond the norm reflecting purity, simplicity and cleanliness. Minimalism though simple and unadorned, is not boring, but can be very attractive and achieve beautiful results.

In this article, we explore the minimalism in the context of wallpaper designs. Particularly, minimalist color and monochrome wallpapers. A minimalist color scheme is normally limited to 2 or at most 3 colors, while monochrome is having only one color represented by differing hues, tints and shades.  Minimalist wallpaper designs are good desktop backgrounds because they are relaxing to look at and gives you less clutter on your desktop.

So here they are, 33 free beautiful minimalist color and monochrome wallpapers for everyone. Hope you enjoy it!
